>Just as an aside: the doctors and psychologists that I know who use
speech to text for dictation do so because it's faster for them to
dictate reports rather than typing (not that they can't type). They
can do so while walking around or even just sitting at their desk, but
speaking is faster than typing.
In their cases, with a special dictionary and training, the
recognition is generally better than 95% since the vocabulary used is
considerably more limited than full speech.
Many doctors and psychologists still dictate reports/evaluations to a
phone service which then uses a person to transcribe the reports.
